I did my first run with a drink in hand today as my distance drifts up past 10K I am starting to feel in need and want to have the habit right for the halfer later in the year.
I think I liked having the drink (bottle of Lucozade sport) except it made me a bit sticky when I spilled drops. However I HATED HATED HATED carrying it. I just felt all out of balance, couldn't get a proper arm swing on the side holding the bottle just no proper rhythm with it. I was really glad when I finished it and could throw it away; however of course that was near the end as I was trying the regular little sips ploy however much I wanted to glug the whole thing just so I could get rid of it.
Anyone got any experience with belts or bandoliers or anything like that I could tuck it into?
